We’re down in Lawrenceville talking all-things comedy with Woody Drennan and Derek Minto, Program Directors for the Pittsburgh Comedy Festival. We get into the growing state of comedy in Pittsburgh, why this is the perfect time for this festival, and a peek at some of the great shows that will be happeneing. Other topics include the difference between imrpov and stand-up culture, our weirdest acting tics, and the hell of 10K runs. Also: Did Derek really want to be a cowboy when he grew up?
